Three Oklahoma authors will hold a writer's conference from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sept. 21 at Crossings Community Center, 2208 W Hefner Road.

The “Write Well, Sell Well Writer's Conference” is spearheaded by writers Cheri Fuller, Melanie Hemry and Rene Gutteridge.

Fuller, of Edmond, said she and the two other writers have been friends for many years and each has been writing for more than 25 years. Between them, they have published 104 books. Fuller said she is a nonfiction writer, Hemry is a ghostwriter and a longtime writer for Guidepost, and Gutteridge is a novelist and screenwriter.

Over the years, people have asked them for help in writing or publishing a book, Fuller said. She said they have worked for more than a year to put together a conference that can help local writers navigate the various elements of becoming a successful writer.

“We've learned a lot over all the years of writing,” Fuller said. “Writing well is about the craft. Selling well is about the business aspect of it.”

She and Wesley Fryer, another local author helping to coordinate the event, said the conference will include:

Fiction and nonfiction writing sessions;

A panel on self-publishing;
